Lynchburg Woman’s Cause of Death Determined, Months Later

Posted: Updated:

There are more details coming to light about a Lynchburg woman found dead in December.

At a press conference Thursday, Lynchburg police said Jamisha Gilbert died of hypothermia. They also say the effects of marijuana smoking contributed to her death, but to an unknown degree.

She was last seen running down Route 460 in Lynchburg on November 29 and her body was found in the woods naked four days later.

There was no sign of sexual assault and Gilbert's death has been ruled an accident.

“I've been told did well in high school, was looking forward to going to college next year with the hopes of becoming an attorney so I would venture a guess that she probably did not engage in anything else. There was certainly nothing else in her diary that suggested that she engaged in any other drugs," said Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael Doucette.

No charges will be filed following the investigation.
